In case you are having 20 people whom you will host for dinner then you are wondering how you will go about it, then here you have the solution.

Take time to look for recipes
To come up with the required recipes, you can google and find the ones that suite you. From the different recipes that you will access, develop cookbooks and go ahead to prepare notes. This will give you an oversight of what you should do come that day.

Inquire what your visitors like to eat
Though it may sound simple, you may end up preparing meals that some of the people do not eat. Think about the whole preparation, costs and you end up with undesired results. This will be heartbreaking to both of you. To avoid such a scenario, it is good to at least have a clue of the kind of the meals your visitors like.

Weather
Weather! You may wonder what has the weather to do with meals. But it is important to put it into consideration. The weather keeps on changing, there are some meals that are not well served by a particular weather. According to the predicted weather, will you be in the mood of the soup? Consult with the weather forecast and you will be in the right position to predict the mood of the people and the kind of the meal they will find suitable.

Plan for leftovers
If you plan to prepare a little extra of every meal, the chances of having leftovers are high. Some people can only feed on leftovers for once, then what will happen to the remaining? Will you freeze it, share with your neighbors? At least plan for it.
